This isn't thousands of miles, but years ago while at the helm and on watch from St. Thomas to Bermuda I was so entranced by the bright shiny path of the full moon leading me directly on course to Bermuda that I steered down the path for my entire watch. Just before watch change - the "duh" moment. The moon had been moving to the west and I had been steering a lovely banana shaped course away from Bermuda. But it was such a lovely night that I almost forgave myself.
